Reading Counts Program Information

This program is offered for all Ridpath students. Reading Counts is an automated software program that monitors student reading progress through multiple-choice questions on student selected books from the Ridpath Library. After a student has read the library book, he/she will be able to take a short quiz on a computer in their classroom, computer lab, or our library. As they pass quizzes and earn points, students will receive fun rewards.  
 
Library Policies 

Kindergarten students may checkout one library book at a time. 

First and Second Grade students may checkout two library books or one library book and one magazine at a time. 

Students can return books and checkout new ones at any time with their teacher's permission as well as on their library day.

If a library book is damaged and cannot be repaired, a notice will be sent home with student for the amount due to replace the damaged book.
